Gula Melaka Chiffon Cake

Hi, looks like the 'chiffon wind' has blown 'south'..hehe..all this while, has been just admiring the softness and sponginess of chiffon cakes which are  ready baked..after looking at blogger friends trying the 'chiffon cakes', I brave myself in attempting this Gula Melaka Chiffon Cake...

Believe me, I read through over and over again, what required so that I don't have any misadventures like some of the attempts(not chiffon baking but other cakes)...from preparing, weighing and mixing the ingredients every step I refer to the print out..heheh ...then  I really sat in front of my oven, looking at the cake rose up..hoping that it wont crack or any unexpected happenings rises up..hehehe..maklumlah first time baked  CHIFFON ...Alhamdullilah, I managed it...My first 'virgin' chiffon cake..kaka..

Ok too much bragging, recipe found here. Thank you, very much for the nice recipe..I am beginning to get addictive to chiffon cakes after making this one..oh no!!..
On another note..going out later to get a new rice cooker, as the exisitng one is on 'life support', I have to get something to hold on to the socket that attached to the base. as the light are fickering and have to check every few seconds for my rice to cook..
